The science and art of origami
Origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, demands patience and dexterity. For 2009 Furman graduate Rebecca Gieseking, who is studying for a Ph.D. in chemistry at Georgia Tech, it also provides a challenge to her imagination and science skills. Gieseking, who majored in art and chemistry at Furman, was the subject of an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Photos of her intricate origami designs are available on her website.
